Like Giving Birth

The words emphatic
In a voice heavy on nasal,
My work has been
Like giving birth to a baby
Followed by a pompous
Overconfident chuckle
A college professor
Of political science
Theatre arts, or was it
Physical education
His incessant droning
Resulting in my choked
Back yawns of exhausted
Disregard until his attempt
At a simile of equality
Rouses me to attention
His curdled sensibility
His perversity of belief
That lack of anatomy
Makes his comparison
Tripe and nonsense
Is my first thought
Quickly followed by
Why is the most
Incomparable living
Physical event
This miracle of creation
Used to attest
To so many efforts
Mundane, average
That anyone would
Reproduce with him
At last the only question
